Our outdoor activities are certainly favourites with our clients and 90% of the time the outdoor option is great and teams have a brilliant time.  However with both storms and heatwaves a factor, we do need options in place to deal with bad forecasts.

In most cases with light rain / showers or temperatures up to 36 degrees we go ahead with the Race as planned.  We have some simple concessions for comfort, such as undercover checkpoints and short cuts if needed. From time to time teams do complete the Race wearing light jackets and really enjoy it.

We routinely do a weather check 48 hours prior to the event and if the forecast is unfavourable we will consult you.  There are generally a couple of options in the case that the weather is not desirable.

We can easily postpone your event to another date that is suitable for your group, or we can look at securing a suitable venue & host an indoor Game Show instead. (Please note that there may be additional fees to hire a venue)

Safety of participants is of paramount importance. Our staff carry compact first aid kits. We also ask the teams to stay together at all times and take care of each other.

All checkpoints are staffed and teams have a mobile number for any problems that arise. Before heading off, our staff ask for a contact number for each team. Participants are always given a choice regarding tasks and no one is forced to do anything they may be uncomfortable with.
